How to Cure Urinary Tract Infection ( UTI ) at Home Naturally
Has your doctor told you you are suffering from Urinary Tract Infection or UTI? You must be a worried person, wondering how you could have got it and how you are going to get rid of it.
Every time you visit the loo, (and that is quite often nowadays)there is a burning sensation in the bladder and sometimes pain while passing urine.
But do not worry – this is a condition which can be easily brought under control with Natural Remedies, without visiting the doctor and without taking any harmful and expensive medication whatsoever.
All that is required is that you should act immediately on the first symptoms, else there is every chance of the kidneys getting infected as well.
The urinary tract is generally infected by the bacteria E-coli. A person suffering from this condition has the urge to visit the toilet very frequently, but will pass only small amounts of urine at a time, and that too with a burning sensation in the bladder each time.
When these symptoms occur it is best to have it diagnosed and start treatment at the earliest. Any delay will result in more severe symptoms such as fevers and chills, with nausea and vomiting, and intense pain around the areas where the kidneys are located.
Urinary tract infection is by and large caused by E-coli bacteria which are generally present in and around the colon.
Other bacteria or fungi or even parasites can also bring about this infection, but these are not as frequent as the infection caused by E-coli.
Women are more prone to this condition than men. When the process of flushing out of the urine is impeded for whatever reason, the urine which accumulates in the bladder becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
Kidney stones or enlarged prostate can cause such obstructions. People who use embedded catheters are often victims of UTI.
